Can Women Lead Their Children In Salaah And Do Women Recite Loudly Or Silently In Salaah?

Question: Assalaamualaikum! I wanted to know,can a mother lead her children in prayer? If so,does she have to stand in line with them or ahead of them?Also,do women read the three salaah that are read aloud as men do? JazaakAllaah Khair,Aameen.

Answer: Wa Alaikum As Salam,

No, a mother should not lead her children in Salaah. If they are very young, then, they on their own, can jon their mother in her salaah so that they may learn.

The Salaah which are required to be read aloud by men, the women should read these silently.
